Film: Discussion

Fishing With John...With John Lurie In Person


Thursday Nov 15, 2012 (10pm–midnight)


Nitehawk Cinema

136 Metropolitan Ave




Sold Out!

John Lurie is something of a Renaissance man. From acting in Jim Jarmusch films like "Stranger than Paradise" and "Down by Law," to his five years on the HBO television show OZ, his jazz ensemble The Lounge Lizards, and his painting career, you'd almost think he never had time to do anything else. But that isn't the case, or at least it wasn't in the 1990s, when he hosted his own television show, "Fishing With John," that was exactly what the title implies: John Lurie going fishing with his cool friends like Dennis Hopper and Tom Waits. Tonight at Nitehawk, episodes of the show will be screened, then Lurie will be on hand to answer questions about his work and maybe drop some anecdotes from the show.
